North vs. South
We got up in time to meet the Greyhound at 7am this morning. Too few lie ins recently! We travelled to Newcastle (not the hometown of Ant and Dec, but a little town just North of Sydney, a bit like Eastbourne!), and then checked into the YHA hostel. For the rest of the day we lay on the beach, which was beautiful and really quiet. In the evening we went with some people from the hostel to a restaurant and bar overlooking the harbour. There was a free BBQ there for everyone staying in local hostels, and then a quiz. We were teamed with two Northern guys - they were a bit obsessed with Northerners and Southerners, and so named our team (very originally) North vs. South. Not sure where Angie (who's Canadian) fitted in! After we had lost, (shockingly!), there was some live music, but we went home after slightly scary woman came on stage to sing.
